VIM - get back to edit mode after Ctrl + S freezes the screen.

VIM - get back to edit mode after Ctrl + S freezes the screen.


I'm used to press ctrl + s all the time that even when I'm using VIM to edit some codes, I press it and you know, it freezes everything and you can't do a thing afterwards.

It has always been a problem and the first time I actually had to google how to get back to vim, today it happened again, and I had my blog open in my browser. So I thought I should add it in my blog, so that I would never forget it ;)

Anyway, its so easy, to get back to VIM, just press Ctrl + q. Then everything will work normally.

If you are curious why it happens, then here's the reason for that. When you press Ctrl + s, your terminal sends a signal (XOFF) to pause the process which sends data to it. To continue the process, you need to send an XON signal back, and it can be done by pressing Ctrl + q.

I hope its clear and it will help someone. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know if you think I need to correct anything :)

  1. Hi, I’m Theodore Ginsburg and I live in Singapore. I’m here to share my own view to the world about how I was helped by Lord Zakuza with his powerful spells for bringing back my boyfriend who neglected and broke up with me for the past 2 and half years. I can’t say much because I really don’t know how to express myself right now for I’m overwhelmed but I really want to appreciate and thank Lord Zakuza for his honesty and gracious work in my life. Thank you xoxo much. Anyone reading this that needs his service can get in touch with him through his WhatsApp number on +17405739483 or via Email on: doctorzakuzaspelltemple@hotmail.com

  5. I have always wanted to be able to not live paycheck to paycheck or have any debt. I worked in accounting for about 20 years and was barely able to make ends meet. It seemed like any time I moved up in the company and received a RISE/PROMOTION, my living expenses would go up significantly and I was never able to get ahead... Then one day my best friend told me the truth about what he did when his wife left him. He had a love spell cast on her and she stopped the divorce proceedings and they got back together. When he told me this I asked who he used and he gave me the email address which is: oduckayamud49@yahoo.com OR oduckayamud49@gmail.com .... YOU CAN USE ANY OF THE EMAILS TO CONTACT HIM and I immediately contacted him for help. I saw that they offered different kinds of money spells to help win the lottery. I was immediately intrigued. I have always felt like I was going to win the lottery someday. I had the jackpot lottery spell cast and awaited my win. I was told to play the lottery each week and I did what I was told. I played the lottery each week anyways, so it did not change anything. Within about two weeks it happened. I won $1000,000.00!! I could not believe it! It was more than enough money to retire right away, but I invested it well and it has allowed me to go down to part time work and will help me retire much earlier. I am eternally grateful for finding their email address: oduckayamud49@yahoo.com OR oduckayamud49@gmail.com .... YOU CAN USE ANY OF THE EMAILS TO CONTACT HIM .... DR ODUCK AYAMUD IS VERY POWERFUL AND RELIABLE CONTACT HIM NOW: oduckayamud49@yahoo.com OR oduckayamud49@gmail.com .... YOU CAN USE ANY OF THE EMAILS TO CONTACT HIM.....YOU CAN ALSO CALL / ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP USING THIS MOBILE NUMBER:+2347059232579
